for the group. he was promoted second-in-command earlier this year. >>> back to the economy now, china apparently going on an american spending spree. a chinese company agreed to buy a big chunk of insurance giant aig for more than $4 billion after the company got a huge bailout during the u.s. financial crisis. that is not the only bargain that china is picking up from u.s. taxpayers lately. stuart varney on this morning, head of "varney & company" on fox business network. good morning, stuart. good to see you. >> good morning, martha. martha: they're gobbling up our assets in many ways . what do you make of it. >> they are spending the money they have got buying american assets cheap. you mentioned aig. a chinese company is paying $4 billion for aig's plane leasing business. aig remember got $189 billion as a bailout fund that was back in september of 2008. the taxpayers still are the largest shareholder in aig. we sold the plane leasing business to china cheap. second item, a 123 batteries, americans taxpayers gave that company $249 million in grants and another 250 million in tax s
for its missile program in china. we know they buy things for their gas centrifuge program in china. some things are made in germany. probably made in the u.s. china has been a major gap in this whole system. on sanctions and north korea could face tougher action from china might constrict some of its ability to buy things that it absolutely needs for its nuclear programs. jon: you think it is likely american-made technology is helping north korea with its missile program? >> could be. i don't know the missile program nearly as well as the nuclear but what north korea does, it uses china a sense as a transshipment point because many companies, high-tech companies from america, from europe, have subsidiaries in china, selling to chinese industries and trading companies. north korea works that system very well to end up with those kinds of high-tech items from outside china. and so while i can't speak specifically on the missile program i certainly can on the nuclear and yes, indeed, north korea buys european high-tech equipment and likely u.s. equipment. so it's a problem. china has been m
. and so what i'm hoping is that in 2013, the central banks of the united states, europe, and china will find a solution to at stop the growth of that disparity. because i believe it's not right there is such a big gap between these derivatives and the actual products. >> so would a resolution of the fiscal cliff in the united states mean that america stops running up debt, would that be a positive step towards resolving that problem, even though it could be a drag on growth in the u.s. economy? >> translator: do not regard myself as a highly educated economist. from where i am, i watch the debate and i see, for example, some economists such as the nobel laureate paul goodman believe this could be counterproductive because too many action of this type could damage one of the important factors of the u.s. economy. on the other hand, unless there is some limit to the growth of u.s. debt, particularly with respect to debt as related to gdp, this could serve in the end badly if there was no limit to it. after all, the u.s. economy still accounts for about one-third of the global economy
guidance was below expectations due to soft sales in china. >>> speaking of china, apple will soon be able to sell his newest version of the iphone there. >>> as for the economy, consumer spending fell slightly last month due to disruptions from >>> welcome back to "hardball." republicans have spent the past three weeks at least doing an elaborate and very public autopsy on the 2012 election. asking what went wrong. good question. like democrats before them after losing an election, they're focusing on the usual suspects, we didn't have the right candidate, didn't get our message out, didn't get our voters out. when you lose the popular vote of five or six elections, you have to consider the voters just didn't reject your messenger, they rejected perhaps your message. we have two strategists back with us. one democrat steve mcmahon and republican rick tyler. rick, you first because you guys lost, and i don't mind saying this because i'm heartened by this. i didn't know it was going to happen. i thought the first debate, as i said clearly on the air -- the president said i was having a stro
it over the last 8 years is to take out a credit card from the bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion from the first 42 presidents, number 43 ed a $4 trillion by his lonesome so we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we're going to have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> so, unpatriotic. >> the hypocrite in chief says in 2008 that 5 from is unpatriotic but now we're up to $16.4 trillion. that's okay. by the way we move my credit card limits. he doesn't want a debt ceiling going forward. >> debt ceiling no more can congress deal when the president says we're going to raise the debt ceiling. no squabbles back and forth. >> let me get this straight. borrow $4.8 billion a day and now we're coming to the edge ever the fiscal cliff. republicans are saying hey, let's continue the bush tax cuts, let's make this fair for everyone but let's stop spending. we are spending more than we have. democrats are saying now they are saying it doesn't matter, we are not focused on the deficit any
so? >> people on his team wanted him to use nuclear weapons against china and -- vietnam. admiral ratford wanted to nuke -- >> how would you nuke in a jungle? >> it's called tactical nuclear weapons. eisenhower threatened to use them. he was good at bluffing. >> is that how he ended korea? >> historians tackled this and -- >> by the way -- >> threatening something worse? >> well, that's what they say. i want to congratulate him, by the way, on this book. i've really enjoyed it, evan. we had talked about it earlier. this is a -- this bluff that you cover in the eisenhower years is a really critical part of the story of that era. it's also a bluff that, in all fairness, condition continues into the kennedy years. the cuban missile years involved the same kind of stakes that happened in berlin and in korea, indochina. eisenhower was a wartime commander and he understood the difficulties in dealing with the soviets but because he commanded the western front in world war ii, he also understood the possibilities for rough or fundamental, i would say, co-existence or cooperation with the
it will consider an appropriate response. but china, north korea's biggest ally, says a moderate response is needed to avoid further escalation. >>> and software pioneer john mcafee is back in the u.s. after being deported from guatemala. he arrived in miami last night and went to an upscale hotel. it's not clear what if any legal issues he faces in the states. officials in belize want to question him in connection with the murder of a neighbor. so this confusing and bizarre story continues. >> indeed. >>> this could be the biggest news story of the day. the announcement that so many of us, and i put myself in this category, the directionally challenged. this is the news we have been waiting for. here we go. google maps is back for apple's iphone 5. the new google maps app for the iphone was released last night. it comes out three months after apple replaced google maps with its own mapping technology. as many of us know, that was a complete disaster. as we have reported. so now google maps are back on the iphone. it was so bad, apple axed two of their executives because that software was so bad. s
whining in 2006 when the republicans passed the free- trade deal with china that lost millions of jobs. you sound like you work for the defense department or something, or defense contractors. host: sorry about that. guest: you made a lot of good points. if you look at this, the defense industry has been a huge lobbyist on capitol hill. companies like lockheed martin been contributed -- contiguous to representatives. -- being contributors to representatives. i do not think anybody is arguing that there should not be cuts to defense or the pentagon. most people who serve on the house or senate armed services committee are about getting rid of these inefficiencies. the real question is, how do you do it in a safe, responsible way as opposed to having this trigger at the first of the year of the forces and across the broad -- across the board cut that does not have any discretion. there are potential issues that could be on the chopping block. host: market is our next caller on our line for republicans. -- mark is our next caller on our line for republicans. you are on the line with juana
